March Is Ethics Awareness Month

Promoting an ethical cultural is a key leadership responsibility.

Promoting an ethical culture in local government is at the core of ICMA’s mission. 

What better time than National Ethics Awareness Month to craft a thoughtful strategy for strengthening the ethical culture of the organization you lead. During the month of March, take the time to promote ethical behavior within your organization. Remind your staff that doing the right thing the right way matters. Let your staff know ethics is worth the effort.

ICMA offers training and technical assistance on ethics, ethical values, and ethical decision-making. Consider these options this month and throughout the year because maintaining your organization's integrity and the public trust is fundamental.?
